The Practice

We are a team of award winning Architects and Urban Designers with extensive experience in the care, residential and hospitality sectors.

With a rapidly ageing population and increasing demand, we are  very well placed to guide our clients in specific care and residential sectors, and also have the required knowledge and experience to design and advise with regards to varying degrees of transition between these two sectors, to our clients’ specific requirements. 

We are very good at:

  • Maximising the development potential of each site

  • Gaining planning approval on difficult sites, and where previous applications have been unsuccessful

  • Providing innovative design solutions for social care issues such as dementia.

How do we do this:

We consult!  We ask the right questions as our aim is to improve your business or personal requirements. From thorough consultations we develop the visionary goals to provide an in-depth concept that will fully inform the design process.

In order to do this we will:

  • Investigate

  • Analyse

  • Guide

  • Identify problems

  • Suggest options

  • Provide solutions

For whom:

  • Private clients

  • Care home operators

  • Housing Associations

  • Developers established within the care or residential sectors

  • Developers who want to progress into the elderly care market, or are required to integrate both

  • Developers with interest in the hospitality sector

Benefits to you:

  • We work out the most efficient layout within site constraints for maximum GDV return

  • We provide innovative, intelligent and efficient designs to suit your specific parameters

  • We are experienced in designing residential needs for an aging population

"Permit me to give special mention to the extraordinary teams who have given me such expert help. (...) Conrad Quast stands out as being the most erudite scholar of them all and despite his relative recent move to the UK, this German national's vocabulary is truly bariatric (one of the words he's taught me).”

Chris Gardner, former Head of Development (Care Homes), Sanctuary Group
